is there any software to convert Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9 brushes, gradients, & patterns to Gimp format? or a plug-in to open them in Gimp?

Some of the PSP resources are plain bitmap files. Patterns should work without any conversions.
Gradients so far have defeated me.
Brushes and tubes. These will open in XnView (and probably Irfanview) and can be converted to an image file. Then to a brush using Gimp.
example: http://i.imgur.com/f6TWQz9.jpg

Tubes take a bit of work. Split the image up into layers and create a Gimp image hose (.gih)
A couple of screenshots, the sort of thing to look out for. A little bit of fade dynamics used.

Here is a another way for the .pspbrush (maybe quicker) if the above programs don't work out
(due to current unresolved issues with your PC, which I see you updating on in the near future...)

paintshop pro brushes:
you could open them up first in paintshop pro, then save it as a .png
-Open the .png in gimp & save that as a .abr

Gradients:
...No need, you can make custom "new" gradients in Gimp

http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/gimptut...itor_2.htm

-When you get to step for colors, add more than two by right-click gradient preview "gradient editor" window, then click "split segment at midpoint"
short visual tut (courtesy of a gimp user): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMweP9aM-0w
-To add more colors to this one, simple, just add more to the palette (see video)
-After, "Gradient editor" to change order/blend of colors(see video)

paintshop patterns:
n_n , there's a plug-in for that.
Ps pattern loader win compiled binary
http://registry.gimp.org/node/11003

(just in case)
plugin source with other versions , scroll down(64-bit, etc.)

The clue is in the first post. "Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9" nothing to do with PS / abr brushes / PSpatternloader.

I used PSP for some time - to version 7. Version 8 and 9 had a slightly different interface. Then Corel took over and the first release Corel PSP X was just a rebranded PSP9. PSP7 and 8 were often bundled with hardware and sometimes can be found cheap on ebay. Not worth buying anything lower than v7 .

Blush my mistake, sorry, i saw the loader as paintshop even though it said photoshop, it came up in my search when I was searching for paintshop pro pattern gimp ><

I like photoshop elements vs photoshop, the layout (boot up of program too) is more basic & it feels faster to get to the tools, has pretty much everything you need for general purpose photo editing ^^

@moltres_rider

There was a reference to a gradient conversion utility on another forum. Very much linux but there is an online version.

a quick try and it works here with a .PspGradient file.
